Being a hardgainer, it is of the utmost importance that you supply your body with plenty of calories in order to gain muscle mass. There is no easier way to do that then by drinking weight gainer protein shakes specifically formulated for hardgainers to help you gain weight.
Before you buy any weight gainer, it’s important that you look at a few key nutritional facts:
Biological Value (BV)
First of all, know that BV isn’t listed under “Nutrition Facts.” The BV is a measurement of how well your body can use the protein, specifically, how fast your body gets to use the protein. For instance, a whey protein like whey isolate has a BV of 159 and is the most readily absorbed by the body. A milk protein like casein has a BV of 77 and absorbs more slowly. After a workout, you want your body to absorb the most protein, which is why whey protein shakes are so popular. However, if you want to drink a protein shake before bed and wake up more metabolic, eating a lower BV rated protein like casein will help you do that because it will be absorbed slowly.
Last week I bought some Serious Mass from Bodybuilding.com and decided to throw in a free sample of Gaspari Nutrition SuperPump250. Now, I’ve never used pre-workout supplements. I’ve never felt the need. But I am seriously considering purchasing it after using my free sample today.
SuperPump250 says that, in clinical trials it:
- Increases lean mass in one workout
- Causes rapid and measurable full muscle pumps
- Reduces percentage of body fat
Sounds like some pretty sexy results. So how did I feel?
As a hardgainer, getting the necessary amount of calories and protein is the most difficult part of gaining weight. Honestly, I highly doubt I would have gained over 30 lbs. if I would have used protein powders with only 300 calories (often less) per serving. I use Serious Mass and I recommend it to anyone looking to gain weight. And, for a limited time at Bodybuilding.com, you will receive a bottle of creatine powder FREE with your purchase.

Creatine is a sports supplement designed to provide short-term increases in strength, energy, and muscle-building. It is a popular supplement among professional and amateur athletes. Creatine is sold as a powder (creatine monohydrate) and as a pill. By taking creatine daily and following a regular workout routine, many people see greater increases in strength.
Where does creatine come from?
Creatine is naturally synthesized in the body from amino acids and helps convert food into energy. We get creatine from eating foods such as meat and fish.
Creatine Monohydrate is a powder form of creatine that can be mixed with any beverage. Many people prefer to mix creatine in a pre-workout sports beverage (Gatorade), as well as mix it in their post-workout protein shake. It is also available in pill form and as a pre-made drink mix.
As a hardgainer, getting the necessary amount of protein every day can be a challenge. Generally, hardgainers should eat one gram of protein for every pound that you weigh. (E.g., If you weigh 150 lbs you should be eating 150 grams of protein per day).
If you’re a hardgainer, Your diet, workout routine, and nutritional supplements all need to work together in order for you to gain weight. You can work out four days per week and lift heavy weights to failure each time, but you won’t gain a pound if you are not providing your body with enough calories. Your diet, workout routine, and nutritional supplements must all work in synergy to gain muscle mass. Read more »
